Interior of not just a shop

not just a shop

Open to the public, not just a shop sells exciting design products and artwork created by UAL students and alumni.

not just a shop is the place to discover unique home, fashion, giftware and artwork by UAL students and alumni. Outside of retail hours it is also a learning space; our programme of enterprise events are designed to help UAL students and alumni to launch and develop their creative businesses.

Proceeds from the shop go back into funding our events programme, so every purchase helps to support the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

UAL students and alumni can attend free talks and one-to-one business advice sessions throughout the academic year.

Visit us at 272 High Holborn or online to discover unique home, fashion, giftware and artwork and learn more about the designers and artists who created them.

Sell your work in not just a shop

New products and artwork are sourced through open calls. Students and alumni from all UAL Colleges can submit their work to be considered for sale.
